Master Plumbers Australia and New Zealand (MPANZ) has continued to grow in strength by fostering excellent collaboration and adopting a unified MPANZ policy position in the areas of licensing, qualifications and regulation.

Across Australia, plumbing businesses face similar challenges. There are differences in regulation across state boundaries, but by and large plumbing and business operations remain constant – particularly for companies that work in multiple jurisdictions. Master Plumbers associations across the country are united and working together on the critical issues that impact our respective members no matter where they are based.
